Tresor Competition is gearing up for the 1000km of Paul Ricard

May 31, 2023

31.05.2023 - After the thrilling comeback in Monza that opened Tresor Competition's campaign in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Endurance Cup, the Italian team will return to the track next weekend for the highly anticipated 1000 kilometres of Paul Ricard.

Two Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II cars will be defending the team's colours: car #40 will be driven by Mattia Drudi (ITA), Ricardo Feller (CH) and Dennis Marshall (GER) under the Tresor Orange1 Racing banner, while car #99 will be handled by the Silver crew composed of Alex Aka (GER), Lorenzo Patrese (ITA) and Pietro Delli Guanti (ITA) representing Tresor Attempto Racing. The race will also feature the Bronze crew #66 also from Tresor Attempto Racing, with Andrey Mukovoz, Dylan Pereira (NL) and Kikko Galbiati (ITA).

This event is particularly important, not only because the race duration extends from the traditional 3 hours to 6 hours, but also because it serves as a crucial endurance test leading up to the Crowdstrike 24 Hours of Spa. The exciting round will take place on the 5.842-kilometre French circuit located in Le Castellet, famous worldwide for its high-speed layout and distinctive blue and red run-off areas. The configuration of the track has made it a perfect venue for testing, often used by manufacturers for their development sessions.

The schedule for the 1000 kilometres of Paul Ricard will begin on Friday at 14:35 with free practice sessions, followed by pre-qualifying at 19:50, the first session under floodlights. Qualifying will take place on Saturday at 11:00, while the race will start at 18:00 and conclude at 24:00.

Ferdinando Geri (Team Principal):
"The race at Le Castellet is a key moment in the Endurance season, both because it allows us to compete in an event longer than 3 hours for the first time this year and because, despite being the second race, it is an important phase of the championship. It will not be easy; it will require balance, strategy and a touch of luck, but we are ready to give our best and confirm ourselves as contenders."

The race will be streamed on the website https://www.gt-world-challenge-europe.com, but it will also be available on SKY, SKY Sport and MS Motor TV in Italy. The programming schedule will be announced soon on the official series website.
